lyrics

And so it seems like, times done changed.
Everybody’s got a profile page. Everybody else knows your name.
And so it, so it seems like that’s the game.
They put a camera on every corner, pointing at us, taking frames and so it…

So it seems like such a shame,
Cant seem to trust each other, we’re so busy dishing out the blame.
And so we're, sowing seeds and we walk away.
Well, what will be, will be. But I remember back in the day…

Yeah I said, way back.
Lets take it way back.
Lets take it way back.
Lets take it way back.

Don’t seem so long ago, man could plant a seed, watch it grow.
We’d judge a man on what he do, what he know.
Don’t seem so long ago, man could plant a seed, watch it grow.
We’d judge a man on what he do, what he know.
Don’t seem so long ago but…

Seems like just the other day,
First play, ready to die,
Couldn’t relate, to what Frank was speaking
I was yet to partake, till labelled a nigga’
So that I embraced, didn’t quite grasp the stakes,
coupled up with the colour of face,
would seal my fate, fast forward to police state,
got me valuing my keep-sakes, cause nobody owe me shit,
Backs mine to keep safe.
Seeking vindication due others emulation, got me burning marijuana for the meditation.
Same act, lead to incarceration,
who you kidding, if your thinking they would pardon Payton.
Probably paranoia from past experience,
Wait. Don’t that make it real shit,
I ain’t fearing it, but rather would be left alone,
So i change my name on the net, and leave my phone at home. Gone.

So it seems like such a shame,
Can’t seem to trust each other, we’re so busy dishing out the blame.
And so we're, sowing seeds and we walk away.
Well, what will be will be. But I remember back in the day…

Yeah I said, way back.
Lets take it way back.
Lets take it way back.
Lets take it way back.
